  • Lesser & Desert Whitethroat

    I was out ringing in Bahrain on Friday and we caught a few good birds including both Lesser Whitethroat (Sylvia curruca) and Desert Whitethroat (Sylvia minula). A couple of photogrpahs of these birds are attached here and other photographs including differences in tail pattern can be seen here http://www.birdsofsaudiarabia.com/20...itethroat.html for those of you who are interested.

    These two species are not so easy to identify in the field, as at least in Saudi Arabia, they keep well hidden in cover and are normally only seen briefly. This is obvioulsy not the case if you catch them!

    Cheers
